Covers has announced that its convoy has arrived at its destination in Lviv and the vital aid was handed over to humanitarian organisation Stay Safe UA.

One of the founders of UKtoUkraine, Caragh Booth, said: “There was huge excitement as the drivers handed over the vehicles to our partners Stay Safe UA close to the Ukrainian border in Poland.

“This convoy is inspirational for the Ukrainians. They realise that the British people and donors are still there to help. What Covers have given is exceptional and a lifeline to those that need it most.

“UKtoUkraine’s motto is ‘help us to help them’. This project has exceeded our expectations.”

Stay Safe UA explained that two of the lorries will be converted into a mobile shower unit and bakery. The third lorry will be transporting the recovery vehicle to the front line and then moving large deliveries back and forth from West to East.

Andrii from Stay Safe UA said: “We want to say a big thank you to UKtoUkraine, Healing Hands Network, Covers and others who got involved.”
